The month of May has arrived, which means New Horizons players get to enjoy the May Day Event and catch some new critters. One of the new fish for the month of May is the Angelfish. In this guide, we take a look at how to catch Angelfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

How to Catch Angelfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons

You can spot Angelfish swimming around in Rivers during the months of May to October in the Northern Hemisphere, and the opposite months, which would be November to April, in the Southern Hemisphere. It has the second smallest shadow size out of all the fish in the game.

  • Fish: Angelfish
  • Location: River

If you are specifically looking to catch an Angelfish, you want to make sure you’re fishing during the evenings around Rivers. There are many different kinds of River fish that can spawn, so the Angelfish will be competing with those other fish.

The Angelfish is pretty common, though, so you will likely catch a few of these if you spend a bit of time fishing. Look out for a small shadow, and you may want to bring some bait with you if you want to specifically catch this one for your Critterpedia.

Farming this fish can be pretty profitable because the Angelfish sells for 3,000 Bells. It’s not the most valuable fish like the Coelacanth and the Golden Trout, but it’s not bad considering how common it is to catch.

That’s all we have for now. I hope this guide helped you learn how to catch Angelfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons. For some other fish new to the month of May, be sure to check out our guide.
